The actress and director Teresita Iacobelli with the director and puppeteer Natacha Belova met in 2012 in Santiago of Chile as part of the La Rebelión de los Muñecos Festival. In 2015, they created a research laboratory around the theater of contemporary puppet, in the same city. At the end of this two-months experience, they decided to create a theater company.
Point Zéro is an artist collective that formed around Jean-Michel d´Hoop, a theater director who has led numerous projects. In 1993, the company received the Prix Théâtre du Meilleur Spectacle (Theater Prize for the Best Performance) for their first piece “Yvonne, Princesse de Bourgogne” (Yvonne, the Princess of Bourgogne) by Witold Gombrowicz. From 1993 to 1998, they created and ran a new space dedicated to the contemporary production “Les Vétés” (former veterinary school of Anderlecht). Since 2006, Point Zéro has rented a production space in Saint-Gilles. To this date, the collective has put on over 20 productions.

Pigmaliao Escultura que Mexe
During this company’s performances, the audience is placed in front of a window from where they observe the realities that underlie the layers of culture, revealing the doctrines lead to moral, social and family domination. The company has developed a provocative language, at the boundaries of that which is bearable and subversive. A surprising work that challenges the audience to recognize themselves as objects of pleasure for the elite, as fetishes of the dominant class.
